The HVHC Data Trust, managed in an industry-leading secure fashion, fuels every HVHC activity.
CMS Measure Reporting – As healthcare delivery increasingly depends on value-based measurement, largely led by CMS, our Members benefit from HVHC studies that generate CMS value-based measures to identify best practices and evaluate new CMS payment models. Members receive timely and transparent insights on comparative CMS measure performance by facility, allowing them to plan for anticipated reimbursement implications and learn from each other to continuously improve. (See an example)
Best Practice Sharing – A hallmark of HVHC is the spirit of transparency and collegiality among trusted partners. As part of a HVHC Best Practices study, teams of clinical and quality improvement subject matter experts review comparative analytics, identify variations, and share internal practices to disseminate common practices that may lead to higher performance on value-based measures. HVHC
Best Practice Sharing initiatives facilitate identification of the “secret sauce” for safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, patient-centered care among leading healthcare delivery systems across the country. (See an example)
Payment Modeling – The rapidly evolving reimbursement environment requires healthcare delivery transformation and adoption of new competencies, including analytic capabilities to prospectively understand the impact of new payment models like ACOs and clinical bundles. Our Members engage key leaders in payor contracting, public demonstration model strategy, and business development to share approaches used to accelerate the transition from volume to value and provide feedback to CMS on new payment models and measures. (See an example)
Public-Private Partnerships – HVHC has a demonstrated history of working with CMS and maintains a steadfast commitment to improving public policy and payment models using the HVHC Data Trust and subject matter expertise. For example, HVHC has partnered with CMS to identify appropriate risk adjustment, implement shared decision making, and provide direct input on policies and proposed rules. As CMS continues to encourage the adoption of value-based care models, HVHC Members are positioned to understand and provide collaborative, evidence-based feedback on new policies and payment models.
